Description

This stunning Mk1 Scirocco GTi was only manufactured for 1 year, making it extremely rare as most Sciroccos brought to the UK were the Storm, or the lesser GLS variants. The car has covered a mere 24,700 miles since it was registered on the 1st of August 1981.
The car is finished in Biakal Blue with a contrasting cloth interior and again this is a very rare colour only offered at the time on the GTi model. The car was supplied with tinted windows, an original Blaupunkt period Radio Cassette, dealer fitted Solite GT Sunroof in working order and externally finished off with unmarked original 5.5J alloys.
Mechanically the car has a fully documented service history complete with all MoTs dating back to the early days having been serviced by Hayselden VW and Snape Hill Garage. More recently the car has received more attention after coming out of hibernation and fitted with a new cam belt, fuel pump, rear brake cylinders, and fully serviced. The vendor, who is particularly fastidious, decided that, as he had no intention of ever selling his beloved Scirocco, he would deal with the inevitable stone chips and touch-ups on a 34-year-old car by commissioning a bare-metal respray. 
Lots of documentation including the V5, Original Bill of Sale, Original Service VAG Wallet with Service Book, 1st Service Coupon, Scirocco Instruction Manual, Original T Hayselden Tax Disc Holder to name a few. There are two sets of keys also supplied.

The driving experience is pure early eighties Golf GTi and mechanically it feels as you might expect having had 14 services in 24,600 miles.
To summarise, this is a very special and rare car from a respected manufacturer, that has been cherished, pampered and garaged all its life. Its one owner, our vendor has spent over £10,000 keeping the car looking the way he wants it. It will certainly be a great investment and a perfect addition to anyone's private collection.
